Progressive Tracks Show #370 (The Beautiful Genre)

Progressive Rock is one of the most emotive and beautiful musical genres… so says I.

This week’s show is going to be a big ‘lighter’ overall; each track is beautiful in its own way… and of course, in my opinion.

And, sadly, we’ll have a tribute to another great artist… and that’s not just my opinion.

  • King Crimson – “Lady of the Dancing Water” from Lizard on DGM (1970)
  • King Crimson – “Cat Food” from In The Wake of Poseidon on DGM (1970)
  • Ahvak – “Bherta” from Ahvak on Cuneiform Records (2004)
  • Electric Mud – “Quiet Days On Earth” from Quiet Days On Earth on Independent (2020)
  • Atilla Engin & Mateo – “Take Care of Your Baby” from Turkish Delight on Arsivplak (1980)
  • Gary Husband & Markus Reuter – “Music of Our Times” from Music of Our Times on MoonJune Records (2020)
  • Jonathan & Corentin Aussems – “Uhb” from Idegael on (2016)
  • King Crimson – “Cadence and Cascade” from In The Wake of Poseidon on DGM (1970)
  • King Crimson – “Islands” from Islands on DGM (1970)
  • Ahvak – “Ahvak” from Ahvak on Cuneiform Records (2004)
  • El Tubo Elastico – “La marcha elástica de los enanitos” from La marcha elástica de los enanitos – Single on Independent (2020)
  • King Crimson – “Happy Family” from Lizard on DGM (1970)
